LIGHTS OF PEACE from page 53

turn the physical light of Shabbat
into spiritual light," Greenberg said.
"We could talk about politics, but
we believe spiritual power has an
effect and we want to do what we
can spiritually to help Israel.
"Lighting Shabbat candles always
warrants a time of personal prayer.
It allows us to take a minute or two
to get rid of all that happened dur-
ing the week and enter the peace of
Shabbat," Greenberg said.
"Shabbat is always a special time
to pray to God," Amzalak said. "I
always have my family in mind
when I light Shabbat candles, but
on May 30, I will take the extra
time to join all the women and girls
who will pray together for peace in
Israel." ❑

*Jewish Quotient

The Shabbat candles are lit — 18
minutes before sunset — on the
table where the Shabbat meal will
be eaten. The lighted candles pro-
vide the atmosphere of shalom
bayit (harmony in the home) and
the light and gladness that Shabbat
brings.
After lighting the candles, the
hands are drawn inward in a circu-
lar motion three times to indicate
the beckoning and acceptance of
Shabbat. With hands placed over
the eyes, the blessing is recited over
the candles:
"Blessed are You, Lord our God,
King of the universe, who has
sanctified us with His command-
ments and commanded us to kin-
dle the light of the holy Shabbat."
After the blessing, personal
prayers. may be added.

dlelighting times, check the For
